Minecraft is a sandbox video game that was created by Markus Persson and developed by Mojang Studios. It was released in 2011 and has since become one of the most popular video games of all time.

In Minecraft, players can explore a virtual world made up of blocks, build structures and objects with those blocks, and interact with other players in multiplayer mode. The game has three main modes: Survival, in which players have to gather resources and craft items to survive in a harsh environment; Creative, in which players have unlimited resources and can build and create whatever they want; and Adventure, in which players can play through custom maps and challenges created by other players.

Minecraft has a large and active community of players, and it is available on a wide range of platforms, including PC, mobile devices, and game consoles.
